modified the text for Saturday to read "50% chance of showers"
removed mention of clouds on Sunday, if rain is likely, there's really no need to mention clouds
models have been fairly consistent with bringing a very strong cold front through beginning Sunday night, so I dropped the max temp down to the lower 40s for Monday.  This is below what the NWS currently shows, see the forecast meteogram attached below from the awesome BUFKIT meteogram site (http://www.meteor.iastate.edu/~ckarsten/bufkit/image_loader.phtml?site=klaf).  Even though technically Monday's max temp from this chart would be in the mid 50s, that temp would occur at midnight Monday morning.  Especially in the extended range, let's focus on the afternoon high temps (and the overnight low temps) in our forecasts, since those are the temperatures that people will actually think are valid when they're outside during the day on Monday.
